Because your oral health needs are unique to you, everyone’s dental implant process is different. Once it’s been determined that you’re ready for your implant, the first step is surgically implanting your tooth’s root. This process is conducted under anesthesia to reduce any discomfort.

After the dental implant is in place, the root needs time to heal and fuse with your bone, which can take 6-12 weeks. Once your dental implant is secure, your connector and crown are attached and your smile is complete.

With regular follow-ups at My Tamarac Dentist, your dental implant should last for years, if not the rest of your life.
